After serving two years in prison, Dr. Conrad Murray was released from jail early Monday morning after serving two years for manslaughter in the death of pop-star Michael Jackson.
Murray was released “safely and securely” from custody at 12:01 a.m., a L.A. County Sheriff spokesman said, according to CBS LA.
The doctor was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Nov. 2011 and was sentenced to four years. Due to California sentencing rules, he became eligible for parole in half that time.
Murray still maintains he was trying to ween the pop star off the drug and that Jackson self-administered the deadly dose.
According to reports, he plans to hire a publicist to clean up his image and he’ll try to get his medical license back.
Do you think he should be allowed to practice medicine again???
